Director Shankar’s sharp acumen in supporting quality content through ‘S Pictures’ comes to the fore once again in Eeram directed by debutant Arivazhagan. Although paranormal subjects are not something new, the narrative style, technical wizardry and the brilliant camera work give Eeram, the real eerie experience.

Aadhi and Sindhu Menon are in love and when Aadhi asks Sindhu’s hand in marriage, Sindhu’s dad agrees but Aadhi’s aspirations to become a police officer stand in the way. And the couple drifts away with a lot of heartache. After a while Sindhu gets married to Nandha and starts a normal life in an apartment complex. A deliberate lie by Nandha to find out if his wife had an earlier love affair results in Sindhu revealing her past innocently which sows the seed of doubt in Nandha’s mind and her murder later on. The subsequent murders of many people responsible directly and indirectly for Sindhu’s death by her spirit take the audience on a thrilling rollercoaster ride which forms the rest of Eeram.

Eeram once again reiterates that content is the hero and scores well. Aadhi fits perfectly in the role of an ACP but somehow romance does not seem to be his cup of tea. Other cast members have understood their roles and have delivered right.

It is hard to believe that this is the first outing of Arivazhagan who has neatly crafted this thrill caper. Even though Eeram moves a tad slow, it does not put brakes in the flow of content anywhere.

Camera which is very crucial for such themes has been handled excellently by Manoj Paramahansa. The scene where water in the kitchen sink stops flowing and abruptly gushes out and the power that suddenly surges, though expected, make the audience’s heart pound rapidly. In a similar vein, when Nandha’s friend Sreenath, struck by Sindhu’s ghost returns home completely haggard only to be further frightened by an innocent prank of his daughter in a mask ups the fear as well as comedy quotient. In the theatre toilet, where Aadhi is on a trail of one of the suspects, special effects, cinematography and director’s intelligence are par excellence. Music by Thaman is an additional asset to Eeram.

People who love thrillers are sure to lap Eeram up.

Verdict: Eeram – Deep Impact
